@frostwork: I'd argue that depending on a tiny AUR package is a lot cleaner than installing 4MBs worth of vim to get the 20KB xxd binary.

frostwork commented on 2021-10-28 14:04 (UTC)

ah nice, thanks for the hint @yochananmarqos

yochananmarqos commented on 2021-10-28 14:00 (UTC)

@frostwork: Both vim and xxd-standalone provide xxd, so just change the dependency to xxd and users can choose.

frostwork commented on 2021-10-28 13:58 (UTC)

@Popkornium18. If it was an official package, I'd change that at once (didn't even know the AUR package exists). But I prefer to depend on as few as possible AUR packages as possible, so I'll stick with vim for now.

Popkornium18 commented on 2021-10-28 13:53 (UTC)

Could this depend on xxd-standalone instead of vim?

frostwork commented on 2021-05-26 14:38 (UTC)

@yochananmarqos, thanks for clarification. (little bit awkward, that I didn't think of that in my previous reply cough)

yochananmarqos commented on 2021-05-26 14:35 (UTC)

@fsyy: mangohud-git needs to both provide and conflict with mangohud. It's missing the provides() array.

frostwork commented on 2021-05-26 07:30 (UTC)

@fsyy: The other -git packages you see in brackets do not come from the PKGBUILD, so they must be grouped elsewhere. I'd guess this feature is missing for mangohud and therefore doesn't show up here.

fsyy commented on 2021-05-26 06:15 (UTC)

maybe add mangohud-git to optional dependecies too.

mentioned cheatengine issue is closed

missingSleepDeps commented on 2021-03-22 20:31 (UTC)

Please update to include cheatengine fix

frostwork commented on 2021-03-01 08:00 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for everything, @demon012! Just replied :)

demon012 commented on 2021-03-01 06:31 (UTC)

@frostwork have sent you an email =)

frostwork commented on 2021-02-28 19:16 (UTC) (edited on 2021-02-28 20:33 (UTC) by frostwork)

(Does anybody have contact to demon012? I hope he's fine, and simply no longer intererested in steamtinkerlaunch.)

Looks like demon012 is active on github, so good to see he's fine. I guess there's also no need to write an email then,so waiting

As a long year gentoo guy I'm no Arch linux PKGBUILD pro (yet), but I wouldn't mind becoming the "main" maintainer for my steamtinkerlaunch (and also which is out of date since some time)

Thanks, @podiki. fixed

podiki commented on 2020-12-04 06:05 (UTC)

bc is a needed dependency for me. I was getting an error (in German I think) of 'bc' missing, and installing that fixed it.

frostwork commented on 2020-09-29 04:34 (UTC)

thx @okasion

okasion commented on 2020-09-25 10:30 (UTC)

bump this is very useful

frostwork commented on 2020-08-15 18:14 (UTC)

@yochananmarqos just have seen your comment. Fortunately I did not forget it with the last bump.

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-08-14 15:31 (UTC)

@frostwork: Please reset the pkgrel to 1 when the pkgver is changed with a release.

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-07-23 15:48 (UTC)

@frostwork: Don't forget to use git pull before your next update. ;)

frostwork commented on 2020-07-15 14:08 (UTC)

thanks a lot @yochananmarqos! fixed :)

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-07-15 14:00 (UTC)

@frostwork: You need to also update the .SRCINFO:

makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO

frostwork commented on 2020-07-15 11:11 (UTC)

@demon012: bumping the package worked fine twice (now on v0.98.1) is there anything I should do to also update the packagedescription on top of this url (it still shows steamtinkerlaunch 0.97-1) or does it simply need its time to sync?

frostwork commented on 2020-07-10 17:54 (UTC)

thanks for the bump! sure why not, @demon012, I do not think though, that I'll keep the speed much longer. :)

demon012 commented on 2020-07-10 17:26 (UTC)

@frostwork: want us to make you a maintainer? You are developing quite fast at the moment and and I cannot keep up with you ;)

frostwork commented on 2020-07-10 17:13 (UTC)

@yochananmarqos, thanks! current master is on v0.97 btw.

yochananmarqos commented on 2020-07-10 16:40 (UTC)

@frostwork: Oops, fixed.

frostwork commented on 2020-07-10 07:32 (UTC)

just noticed that you're installing the sbs/tweaks into "/usr/share/steamtinkerlaunch/" the program searches in "/usr/share/stl/" though

frostwork commented on 2020-07-07 19:46 (UTC)

hi, just fyi: I just pushed v.0.94 introducing usage of global "tweaks" and "sbs" dirs in "/usr/share/stl/", maybe you want to drop the bundled config files there. cheers, frostwork

frostwork commented on 2020-07-06 20:45 (UTC)

thank you for creating/maintaining the PKGBUILD! happy frostwork :)

demon012 commented on 2020-07-04 20:34 (UTC)

Hey yochananmarqos,

I have updated to your version of the PKGBUILD and listed you as a contributor.

  • The pkgver should not be a commit hash, see VCS package guidelines: The pkgver() function.
  • The description should be under 80 characters and not contain the name of the package, see PKGBUILD: pkgdesc.
  • You're missing dependencies that should be in an optdepends() array, see Requirements.
  • The files referenced in the backup array do not exist. Files not installed by the package cannot be backed up.
  • Nothing should be installed in /usr/local/, see Arch package guidelines: Package etiquette / Directories.
  • The files being installed in /usr/local/share/ will not be found by the script as it only looks in STLCFGDIR. Even if you modified that variable, that location needs to be a user editable location for editing and creating new config files.
